"Through the Query of time"

------Querys with time fields-------

Assume I have a table like this:

MYTABLE With fields: Code (Integer Type), Time1 and Time2 (of Type TTime)

and I want to do a query like this:

SELECT * FROM mytable
WHERE time1 <= 12:00:00

But the program returns:

"Token not found.
Token 12.
Line Number 2"

Well, as you may have noticed I want to know how to do queries in time fields.

I tried removing the spaces in te WHERE clause, like this:

WHERE time1<=12:00:00

but then it returns:

"Invalid use of keyword. Token: time1<=12. Line number 2"

You need to place the time into quotes:

SELECT * FROM mytable
WHERE time1 <= "12:00:00"

hi chachote,

it is allways better to use a param in your query like

SELECT * FROM mytable
WHERE time1 <= :TheTime

and using following code

query1.Close;
query1.ParmByName('TheTime').AsDateTime := StrToTime('12:00:00');
query1.Open;

To meikl:

I really pretend to do it with params, but need to try it with some data first.

When I tried params my query wouldn't return anything. So I decided trying with "raw" data first. I gues if this works then parametrized queries would  too.

well, ok, chachote,

then your statement must look like

SELECT * FROM mytable
WHERE time1 <= Cast("12:00:00" AS TIME)

or (not so good solution)

SELECT * FROM mytable
WHERE CAST(time1 AS CHAR(10)) <= "12:00:00"

(not tested)
